Welcome![edit]

Some cookies to welcome you! Face-grin.svg

Welcome to Wikipedia, Geekdiva! I am Marek69 and have been editing Wikipedia for quite some time. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page or by typing {{helpme}} at the bottom of this page. I love to help new users, so don't be afraid to leave a message!

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Oh yeah, I almost forgot, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome!

Some questions have no answers[edit]

Thank you for resolving the problem I inadvertently caused at Oichi. I've responded to your comments at Talk:Oichi. Although it appears you came to this article because of a fictional manga character, it may interest you to know that the articles about this historical figure and her daughters are going to come under increasing scrutiny in the near future.

This mistake is one of those I should have caught myself; but, in any case, I'm glad you were the one who first stumbled across my oversight. --Tenmei (talk) 16:39, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Your Arata Kangatari sandbox[edit]

Hello Geekdiva, I'm just leaving you a note to tell you that I've moved your Arata Kangatari sandbox page in accordance with Viz's title, and have also done some work on the page itself - it is now located at User:Geekdiva/Arata: The Legend, and I added a couple of external links that should help with adding some more information as well. Cheers! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 20:05, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

I don't recall ever creating a sandbox. I've been puzzled by this sandbox's existence for a while, especially since when I click View History, it shows me the history of the main article! Unless it would somehow affect the main article, I'm eventually going to delete it. Thanks! --Geekdiva (talk) 22:02, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Oops. I forgot I was in a section someone else started when I typed this, so I wasn't demonstratively appreciative. Thanks for your efforts! Sorry I don't check my user talk page often and so I missed your post for years. I dunno what to do... Will it cause problems or waste your efforts to delete the sandbox? Well, WP says to be bold, but I'll need a nap first. :) --Geekdiva (talk) 20:05, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Just a heads-up, I replied to your comment on my talk page. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:35, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Orogeny pic[edit]

SunRiver.JPG

I am no technicl writer, so maybe I can semi-explain what is happening in the pic and you can fix the caption in good English. The white bed is brought up to the surface by a small thrust fault splay off of a main thrust fault, hence the white cliff that I (the photographer) am standing on that becomes thinner and thinner along strike of the ridge, in the upper center of the pic. The main fault is expressed by the larger range (including the 3 finger sawtooth mountain) in the upper far right to upper left of the pic, on the horizon, which is the same rock, repeted along the bigger fault. The foreground mountain is actually just a small feature to the larger feature, wrapping around to the right on the pic. Does that make any sense? Let me know. This pic is used in several articles... if you click on it, you can see... so many captions may need to be fixed. Qfl247 (talk) 22:54, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Outline of Saskatchewan has gone live[edit]

Continental models[edit]

Hello Geekdiva. I totally understand what you said. I'll try to do my best. AlexCovarrubias ( Talk? ) 23:49, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Outline collaboration[edit]

Here's the latest addition to the religion section of Portal:Contents/Outlines. Wikipedia has rich coverage on this subject. Very interesting, especially from sociological and historical perspectives.

This is a call to all members of the Outline WikiProject and outline aficionados to help refine this outline. It needs annotations, missing topics added, and the entries in the general concepts section placed in more specific sections. It needs your editing skills. Let's turn it into a beehive!

Come join in on the fun and get acquainted with members of the Outline WikiProject.

The Transhumanist 04:55, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

P.S.: I had no idea this religion was so extensive or that it had so many followers. Hope to see you on the outline!

{{vocab-stub}}[edit]

Hi. I have responded rather belatedly to your question at Template_talk:Vocab-stub#Deprecated_or_not.3F_In_favor_of_which_template.3F. I hope it clarifies matters. Dominic·t

proposed Category: Witchcraft museums or Category: Wiccan museums[edit]

You seem to know something about categories. I really don't. I think that one of those needs to be created, and presumably it would be made an appropriate subcategory. If you look at the {{Category: Magic museums]] there are at least two articles that should be under it. I know nothing about creating categories, and don't want to screw this sup For your consideration. Happy editing. 7&6=thirteen () 15:09, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Outline of Quebec (eom)[edit]

Danger: alert page unnoticed[edit]

The Outline of relationships was nominated for deletion.

It was then overhauled and the nomination was withdrawn.

Only a couple members from the Outlines WikiProject showed up at the AfD.

Do you have Wikipedia:WikiProject Outlines/Article alerts watchlisted?

If not, please watchlist it.

Thank you. The Transhumanist 09:30, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Mystery[edit]

Please solve this mystery if you can...

On September 23rd, traffic to Portal:James Bond doubled, and has stayed at the new level since then. I can't figure out what happened.

See http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Portal%3AJames_Bond

Traffic to Outline of James Bond stayed the same (though it was at the higher-level already), which leads me to suspect changes made somewhere in Wikipedia.

See http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Outline%20of%20James_Bond

I'd like to find out what happened, in case it reveals helpful link placement tips that can double the traffic to outlines too!

I look forward to your reply. The Transhumanist 22:41, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Please help fill in annotations at Portal:Contents/Outlines[edit]

Please go to Portal:Contents/Outlines' and fill in as many missing annotations as you can, even if it's only one or two. Every little bit helps!

The annotating of the entries on Portal:Contents/Outlines is nearing completion.

Annotated entries look like this:

  • Basketball – team sport in which two teams of five players try to score points by throwing or "shooting" a ball through the top of a basketball hoop while following a set of rules.
  • Canoeing and kayaking – two closely related forms of watercraft paddling, involving manually propelling and navigating specialized boats called canoes and kayaks using a blade that is joined to a shaft, known as a paddle, in the water.
  • Cricket – bat-and-ball team sport, the most popular form played on an oval-shaped outdoor arena known as a cricket field at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard (20.12 m) long pitch that is the focus of the game.
  • Martial arts – extensive systems of codified practices and traditions of combat, practiced for a variety of reasons, including self-defense, competition, physical health and fitness, as well as mental and spiritual development.

Entries needing annotations look like this:

The links to the country outlines don't need annotations (they are listed by region).

Even if all you can do is one or two, the support will be greatly felt. Many hands make light work.

Degree symbol[edit]

[1] not twice. Only once. Surprisingly, "degrees of temperature" was not an improper capitalization (although I agree with the change). Incnis Mrsi (talk) 22:30, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hunting for embedded outlines[edit]

While you are reading or browsing Wikipedia articles, please...

...keep a lookout for outlines embedded in articles.

I've run across a number of these over the years. One example is the Outline of fencing, which used to be part of the fencing article.

If you know about or spot any structured general topics lists in articles, please let me know (on my talk page).

Another thing you might find are articles that are comprised mostly of lists (without "Outline of" or "List of" being in the article's title). If you come across any of these, please report them to me on my talk page. I'd sure like to take a look at them.

Happy hunting.

I look forward to "hearing" from you (on my talk page). Sincerely, The Transhumanist 07:55, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Historic states represented in Turkish presidential seal[edit]

Hi Geekdiva, I saw your comment in the edit section of the Historic states represented in Turkish presidential seal (personally I'd prefer to use the tak page instead of edit sectiont.) This concept is older than 1985. Exactly to which article you have voted to merge? This article is not about Turkic states. There is no sound scientific basis for 16 states. This article is about 16 stars in the seal and official (but unscientific) explanation about the stars. Cheers.Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:28, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia from WikiProject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are involved in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

Sobo 1909 589.png
  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • Lastly, why not try and strive to create a good article! Anatomical articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages! --LT910001 (talk) 01:56, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
